This unique piece combines the familiar camellia motif so loved by Mademoiselle Chanel with an exquisite hand-stitched embroidery on a beige silk dial.
The 18-carat white gold case of the watch is set with 60 brilliant-cut diamonds and has a further 80 brilliant-cut diamonds on the white-gold buckle of the strap.
But what sets this Swiss Made unique piece apart is its delicate dial, which has three camellias embroidered on to it, each with a natural pearl in the centre. Combining two different embroidery techniques, metallic threads embroidered using a Luneville hook accentuate the outline of the flowers, while straight points embroidered with bright white silk threads form the inner petals, giving a striking depth to the dial.
This unique piece comes with a matching white satin strap and is powered by a quartz movement. The hour and minute indications are shown off-centre in the 5 o'clock position.
The guideline price for this model in the Only Watch 2015 auction is €40,000.
